Hizbullah Lauds Spiritual Summit: Its Statement is Tantamount to National Document for Lebanese
Hizbullah praised on Wednesday the spiritual summit that was held at Dar al-Fatwa on Tuesday, saying that its concluding statement reflects national principles and protects Lebanon.
It said: “The summit statement is tantamount to a national document that reflects the Lebanese people’s expectations.”
It highlighted the significance of the attendance of the major spiritual leaders at the meeting given the unrest in the region and American meddling that serves Israeli interests.
“The spiritual summit asserted national principles and uncovered the agendas that are seeking to harm Lebanon,” added Hizbullah in a statement.
It praised the summit for advocating dialogue and national unity as a means to confront attempts to create strife in Lebanon.
“This position is necessary for the Lebanese to determine their fate freely, away from foreign hegemony and Israeli agendas,” it continued.
“We hope the summit would return those sides who have lost the right path” back to the Lebanese fold, concluded Hizbullah.
The Dar al-Fatwa spiritual summit stressed on Tuesday the importance of historic and current cooperation between Christians and Muslims in Lebanon.
It said that all sides in Lebanon “should adhere to the civil state, frank dialogue, and reject foreign meddling in Lebanon.”
“The country’s stability is based on the principles of mutual coexistence, as well as respecting the constitution and sovereignty of the state,” it added.
“Preserving the Lebanese people’s unity requires them to firmly oppose foreign meddling,” it stated.
The summit was headed by Grand Mufti Mohammed Rashid Qabbani and attended by Vice President of the Higher Islamic Shiite Council Abdul Amir Qabalan, Druze spiritual leader Sheikh Naim Hassan, and Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi.
